This 11 1/2" long, just under 4.2 T. oz., soup ladle incorporates several particularly appealing elements favored in mid 19th century American silver originating in sophisticated urban centers.

This knife is a rare example of a solid mother of pearl handle... Click for details

It is a 10" long, just under 4.4 T. oz., probably oyster, ladle. Oyster ladles were slightly smaller than that soup, which could run to as much as 14" in length in the mid 19th... Click for details
